How do I unlock a door without a key?

There are two ways to unlock one of the car doors without a key: 1. From inside the vehicle, pull the door handle to open the door. This will automatically unlock the door, and open it. This feature only works on the front doors. 2. Push the door lock tab (located directly above each door handle) rearward. This will unlock the door and allow it to be opened from the inside or the outside.
